Brazil will have to face Argentina without Neymar Jr. The forward of the ‘canarinha’ will cause a loss in the South American superclassic due to a problem in the adductor of his left leg.

The ‘verdeamarelha’ coaching staff decided to reserve the footballer, who will return to France in the coming days.

According to Globoesporte, the measure was also based on the fact that the footballer faces a tough duel in the Champions League between PSG and Manchester City.

Brazil, having already qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, can afford to rest its star, who will arrive fresher at the event.
